As an introduction to high-end Japanese cutlery, the Tojiro DP series of knives is arguably the best. The quality of the core VG-10 steel, stainless clad construction, blade geometry, versatility of edge profile and high level of fit and finish are unmatched at the price points offered. Convexing on the blades is done very well, the tapered spine on most knives in the DP series heightens balance and dexterity, and the flush handle surfaces make these knives incredibly comfortable to use for long periods of time. It is no wonder that these knives are favorites among value conscience professional and home cooks in both Japanese and Western kitchens.
The Tojiro DP 165mm Nakiri is a traditional Japanese style of knife designed to efficiently prep vegetables and fruits. The taller blade gives the knife excellent cutting power and stability through larger cuts and the flatter edge profile makes this pattern ideal for chopping. While a tip is absent on Nakiris, they are actually quite versatile knives that perform very well in most vegetable cutting applications.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
